On Thursday, November 17, the members of the Red Bank Business Alliance (RBBA) will host their first Holiday Soirée at the Molly Pitcher Inn overlooking the beautiful Navesink River. Scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., the evening of holiday festivities will focus on supporting the business owners, consumers and residents of the Red Bank area, with an emphasis on giving back to the community.

One hundred percent of ticket sales and proceeds from the event will be donated to two locally based nonprofit organizations — Jason’s Dreams for Kids, helping local kids with cancer fulfill their dreams, and Clean Ocean Action, focusing on a project to clean the Navesink River. Guests will enjoy silent auctions, complimentary cocktail tastings, fine fare, drink specials and entertainment.

The RBBA is an alliance of Red Bank business owners founded with the purpose of enhancing the vibrancy of Red Bank as a destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. We team with Red Bank River Center, the Red Bank Borough Council, and residents to make Red Bank everyone’s “First Choice” to work, shop, dine, play and reside.

For this inaugural Holiday Soiree event, we are working with Jason’s Dreams, the borough-based organization that holds a variety of fundraising events devoted to granting wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Bringing a little happiness and putting a few smiles on these children’s faces — and hopefully their parent’s faces — is their goal.

Based on Sandy Hook, Clean Ocean Action has worked tirelessly to protect the quality of our region’s waterways and coastal communities. Their Navesink River project will identify the sources of pollution and mount an attack on each source by using research, public education, and citizen action.
